Streaming TV gets choppy every few seconds

Streaming TV gets choppy every few seconds

Whenever I try to watch a TV show, every 5 seconds or so the video and audio will stutter for a second or two. Normally I'd pause the video and let it buffer, but for some reason the Xfinity player doesn't seem buffer at all. Lowering the video quality doesn't help.

 

I don't get this problem on Netflix or any other streaming services, so it can't just be slow internet speed.

 

I'm using Chrome 66.0.3359.139 on Windows 10 with Flash 29.0.0.140.

Re: Streaming TV gets choppy every few seconds

I'm having the same exact problem as well. All other videos will load and play normally on my computer like Netflix and YouTube except for Xfinity TV Stream, all it does is skip/stutter every couple seconds. Lowering the video quality doesn't help at all just makes it go from bad to worse.

Yes, I've seen other people have had this problem a lot in the past but I've never actually seen a forum thread in which the problem is resolved.

 

Xfinity streaming did work for me once... is there some way to make it work for me again???
